London, Aug 8 - Batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar on Tuesday urged skipper Virat Kohli to continue his brilliant batting exploits and let his heart "guide the way", as an under-pressure Indian team prepares for the second Test at the Lord's, after losing the five-match series opener at Edgbaston.

Kohli emerged the lone batting star for the visitors in the 31-run loss at Edgbaston, with scores of 149 and 51, which also led him to topple banned Australian batsman Steve Smith from the No.1 Test spot in the International Cricket Council (ICC) rankings.

In the midst of all the criticism from various quarters for failing to guide India to a win in the opener, Kohli, however, attained the career-best No.1 Test ranking and the first time that any Indian batsman had achieved the feat since Tendulkar himself in 2011. "I would say, just continue, he's doing a fantastic job so just continue," Tendulkar was quoted as saying by espncricinfo.
